I think this graphic speaks for itself.
People who have no sensible agenda but to inflame vulnerable Americans — nor display any semblance of sense — deserve no place in leading this country, nor should they deserve a spotlight via which to tell people how they should think and act.
I think it’s a fair expectation of those who are elected to represent the individuals that comprise this country that they are responsible for their actions, and to make sure that their actions are responsible.
As if that’s not enough to convince you that someone slightly frustrated and light of mind just might take this movement the wrong way, how about this ad, run by Rep. Gifford’s opponent last year:
That’s more than simply irresponsible. And it’s the type of inflammatory rhetoric that people need to think twice about before using when representing the public, especially in these volatile economic and political times. And if, after careful consideration, they do decide to use this language after all, they’d better be prepared to take responsibility of and face the consequences of their actions.
We need our representatives and spokespeople to think before they speak, and to take responsibility for what they do and say.
